Some comments from our clients:

​   "Roger Ness has just finished an incredible job     of  salvaging my deck from the ravages of my "do   it  yourself" determination. After a thorough job   of  power washing, he spent addition time and    effort  to remove puddles of solid color stain that   I  thought were impossible to remove. His      knowledge of exterior stain materials is    exceptional, and he was conscientious in      explaining the merits of several finish coat    options. The deck that has been visually off-    limits for the past few years is now a show piece.    It is pleasure to recommend Sterling Property  Services to anyone needing the services they      offer."

Howard Bakken 

Hendersonville, NC 

 "Thank you for your professional and  proficient  service for our deck stain project.  Roger certainly  has the magic touch and  transformed our  weathered deck into an inviting  outdoor  woodland wonderland. His direction in  product  choice and color match is greatly  appreciated.  We look forward to many days of  enjoyment,  whether for just an afternoon nature  gaze or  evening gathering with friends and  family."

Frank and Pam Rocca 

Carriage Park, Hendersonville, NC 

 "The mountains will certainly test the durability    of outdoor paint and stain. Our deck front porch  and garage doors were in desperate need of  attention, and thanks to Roger, everything has  been restored to its original brilliance. His  experience and uncompromising standards  ensured a perfect outcome, and for that we are  extremely grateful. We would not hesitate to  recommend Sterling to anyone requiring any of  the range of services they offer. Roger and Sandy  are both totally reliable and they are a delight to  work with."

 "Mary and I have used Roger's services for    several years and are very pleased with his work.  We find him to be both knowledgeable and  professional. He is very thorough and his  attention to detail is reflected in the quality of his  work."

Malcolm and Mary Kessinger 

Kenmure, Flat Rock, NC 

 "Roger, I wanted to take a minute and thank you  for the excellent work you did on our deck. The  level of quality work you did was beyond our  expectations, and your attention to detail was  not something one would expect for deck work,  more like fine indoor painting. Please feel free to  use us for future reference and we look forward  to working with you in the future."

Fred and Kathy Postelle 

The Cliffs Valley, Travelers Rest, SC 

 "Thank you for a fabulous deck, for your time,  expertise and professionalism. It is greatly  appreciated and I will definitely be  recommending your services to my friends and  colleagues."

Meg Mountainbear 

​Asheville, NC 

 "STERLING PROPERTY SERVICES =  EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY AND VALUE. We just  wanted to thank you for transforming our home  into a woodland retreat. Your product  knowledge and the quality of your labor are  exceptional. We especially appreciate your  suggestion of the natural look for our wrap- around porch and rear deck flooring. We  struggled to keep mildew away without success,  and your clean and treat process along with the  Australian Timber Oil applied does just that.  Sandy, your color choices for our home were just  right. All of the work fell within our project  budget. Thanks so much."

Afterward, the natural beauty of the wood comes through. Note the downspout is painted to match the stain, except for the section that is painted to blend with the gutters.

When the work was done, the house and deck looked better than when they were new.

Staining in progress on the kitchen deck before the house was repainted. 

The poor condition of the porch, the high contrast between the wall and the trim colors, plus the accented banding boards had a negative effect on the appeal of this house.

We restored the porch, corrected the color of the house and painted the banding boards in the wall color. The improvement is dramatic.

Notice how bleached and deteriorated the wood had become from washing it with too much pressure. It too had to be sanded to bare wood.

Deck restoration completed..

After completing the restoration, we recommended a coordinating deck color and stain for the gazebo roof.

In addition to the deterioration, the deck stain color didn't work with the house color.

The deck had to be sanded to bare wood to remove the damaged layer.
